Yast, in my experience, is only slow if you've added lots of repositories and
told Yast to update them every time it starts up. I just turn off update for
repositories I'm not using and Yast speeds up a lot in startup time.

I certainly agree about's very slow. I suspect it's because there are
fewer zen repositories and consequently they're getting hit harder and have
less bandwidth available, but this is pure speculation on my part. I
certainly did'nt ask for zen, don't want it now, but am stuck with it.
